Crew at Camp Arnes strikes an awesome balance between work and play. After all, having a blast is way more fun after a job well done. And at Crew, the work is all part of the fun anyway!
Crew sessions run for two weeks, with a weekend home in between. Days are split between work projects and activities, swimming and sessions. By the time your two weeks are up, you’ll get to experience all the awesome activities Camp has to offer. Along with that, you’ll take home a huge sense of satisfaction and a bunch of volunteer hours.
A day in Crew starts with work projects where the goal is to get the job done while learning work ethic, teamwork and valuable skills along the way. Your Crew leaders will help show you how it’s done and make sure the team has fun along the way. Who said work can’t be entertaining?
The other half of the day is all for you. Swimming keeps you cool, while free time to visit the Tuck Shop tops up the energy level with sweet treats. Each day has its own activities for the Crew to pursue: Zipline, High Ropes Challenge Course and the Giant Swing are just a few. Back in your very own Crew lounge, Sessions are your chance to kick back, chat and just be real about important life issues. By the time evening rolls around it’s time for more fun and games at Mid-Eve-Mania, Camp’s giant field game. To top it all off, Crew sit front and centre in the Wigwam for awesome skits, music and a message from the Camp speaker. Crew is a life changing journey, so check it out this summer.
